I tend to deal with the things I have control over. The things I have little to no control over, I let go of those things; but I’ve not always done it that way.
As a child I held on to everything, primarily because I lived with guilt and that guilt had no where to go. But the control we have is rooted in fear. We worry that without control we will struggle to function, because it’s the control that keeps us on track. We worry if we deviate.
Control keeps us attached to a specific outcome, which we’re not always happy to move on from. The outcome is something we’re comfortable with, rather than have to deal with and work through change. We know what we know, why would we upset the apple cart? But the reality is that the more we put our trust in the things we can control, the less we will manage our lives.
The universe expects us to work in accordance with its rules around our circumstances, but we don’t always need to be in control. Sadly, we can’t always be in control of our issues or circumstances, but we can learn to manage those. Personally, I believe that things happen for a reason that if an opportunity comes knocking, it’s there for us to work through whether we have control or not.
Not having control doesn’t limit our ability to manage or bring our issues or circumstance to their rightful conclusion. But it’s the act of needing to have control that continues to create the stress as long as we let it. When we believe the universe micromanages the overall outcomes, we surrender to a higher force and let go.
We need to stop emotionally fighting ourselves, having to have control all the time and for the things we can’t control, we need to have faith, to let the natural order of things occur as they’re meant to.
